of the defense spending cuts and we're not going to fold the debt ceiling increase into this deal, and i think the white house was very taken aback by the meagerness of that offer. and so there's a different tone. but if the substance is going to be enough and the time is short, it's really going to be complicated to get this done by the end of the year. >> mosark, if the debt ceiling not wrapped up, the president is not going for it. he does not want to face this twice. >> it's impossible to imagine, that's such a key piece for the white house, just not to have this fight again. it's going to have to be a joint whip operation in the house. i think there will be a period from the time there's a deal amongst the leaders in the bipartisan leadership in the white house, there will be a period from then until it gets passage in the house that will look like where are the votes going to possibly come from. but if stan hoyer and john boehner are willing to do a deal that they can both support, i think they can get to a majority in the house. the key -- the real trick is the two-part thing or maybe t

security and medicare, make some defense cuts if you have to but we'd rather just see the rich get taxed and the near rich get taxed if we have to do that. >> the numbers do not add up, the left is being fundamentally dishonest. they are saying you don't have to cut social security or medicare or medicaid to get the deficit down, all you've got to do is tax the rich some more. they are recklessly suggesting that we go deeper and deeper and deeper into debt heading towards bankruptcy. the numbers, megyn are stunning. we have an unfunded liability for medicare of $42 trillion. an unfunded liability for social security of $20 trillion. and a further 20 trillion for unfunded pensions for federal employees, that adds up to $86 trillion which are committed to pay in the future and the money we do not have. therefore, you cannot just tax the rich to get rid of the deficit. you simply can't do that. the numbers don't add up. megyn: chris, what do you make of this, the president is now going to go out on what looks like sort of like a campaign stop on friday to pennsylvania. he already had this m
. >> there isn't anyone left right or center who wants to compromise america's national defense but to believe that having ended one war in iraq and ending another in afghanistan and reassessing our role in the world we cannot find savings in the pentagon is not affair assessment. >>reporter: i have heard that from others, as well, after two wars, after the great expansion of our military over the two wars, there could be some savings to be had but at this point a lot of discussions are going on, a lot behind closed doors and not a lot of leaks. there is a lot of anxiety about what, actually, will get done if it gets done. >>shepard: thank you from the rotunda. personal income was up across the country including in all major metropolitan areas. the federal bureau of economic analysis reports 98.4 percent of the counties saw an increase. the biggest growth was in middle america in areas in the blue: nebraska, north dakota, south dakota. small towns saw 3 percent increase in income per person compared to 1.8 percent in urban areas. the analysts say farm income and especially the natural gas indu
the israeli defense force was using twitter and youtube and facebook to generate support in ways that we had never seen before during war time. but this picture is doing just the opposite. this is idf spokesperson on facebook. he smeared his face with mud and he has written the caption "obama style." he has since taken his facebook pictures private. one commenter asked if it is appropriate to mock the president of the united states considering how much money the u.s. sends to israel. some context here. this picture was apparently taken at the dead sea some months ago and based on some comments, it's fairly common practice, apparently, to cake yourself with mud as a therapeutic practice. it is a reference to president obama that turns the critic from muddy to black face. black face is a practice, at least in america is racist. we are not talking about any israeli soldier. this is the spokesperson for the army. supposedly a social media expert. he is one of the team doing the tweets and facebook posts. says the idf uses social media for the support for the fight against hamas. back to you. >>>
defensive coordinator. the guy is top of the field in terms of being a coordinator. what he's not been able to do, he changed the attitude of the team. you know, they are relevant, but in any case, he's not been able to surround himself with good talent on the coaching level. there's matt, the quarterback coach, and these guys are not producing. rex might not have the pulse of the team in terms of anything else other than the defensive side of the ball. he really needs to become this leader to become the ceo. he can't be a defensive guy. david: when a quarterback is running into the rear end of one of his own guys and drops the ball and the other team brings it in for a touchdown, that shows lack of management. >> that's right. that shows lack of execution going to coaching and mental lapses. you can't have that if you're the jets, if you're rex ryan. you have to have guys ready to playing and they have not been. it's an utter embarrassment. david: another sport mixed in there, baseball, george steinbrenner never would have put up with a coach with a lack of discipline or unable to put the

bombing that took place in tel aviv. that blast happening as the bus was passing the defense ministry there. hamas leaders praised that bombing calling it a natural response to israeli massacres in gaza. in gaza, however, people took to the streets in celebration of that explosion in israel. the white house condemning the bus bombing, going on record saying that the u.s. will stand with its israeli allies. joining me from cairo, nbc news correspondent jim maceda. jim, explain to all of us the reaction to secretary clinton's visit to the region and the impact that her presence has brought to the negotiations for a cease-fire. >> reporter: first, the reaction has been one of anxiety, anticipation, and of deep hope that secretary of state hillary clinton can now broker or help to broke err deal. they certainly don't want war right next door. many are asking where america has been for these past eight or so years. i think the overall feeling is one of anticipation, that something hopefully now can move forward. in terms of her impact today, she's met already with president morsi. she's al
in defense attorney and law professor joey jackson. joey, you know, on the surface this sounds big. almost unbelievable. >> huge. >> how could they have missed this, but i guess the question is if it hadn't been missed, if they had found this, if the prosecution had this in their hands, would it have changed the outcome? >> i think this is what we call outcome determinetive. how powerful would it have been for the prosecution to have evidence the day she went missing of a search that said "fool proof suffocation." i think it's a game changer. it's a huge miss on their part. even more importantly, the defense had this. how could the prosecution not? >> that's right. defense attorney jose baez said he knew about this all along and was actually waiting for it to come up. >> it never did. exactly. so interestingly enough, the question is asked, well, you ho could a defense attorney do that? don't we share information? the answer is yes but no, but here's what i mean. there's an obligation for what we call reciprocal discovery. if i have information, i have to give it to the prosecution so they
with the charade. indications are by the three senators today that he did. also the defense department, all right, would have to go along with the charade, all right, and that is secretary panetta. so they would be compromised. so you'd have two huge agencies compromised by party politics. now we're getting into the fabric of our democracy here, are we not? >> yes. but we're also getting into more speculative territory. we know the fact that what susan rice said was false. we know her defense is not credible. the one where she says well, there was a classified and there was you can classified. look, when you have a classified thing that you can say, the unclassified is simply stuff that is detailed to back it up which you don't want to reveal. but in this case, they're claiming that the classified was a completely different story, a preplanned -- >> bill: she shouldn't have said anything. >> unclassified is a spontaneous demonstration. so it isn't a back up of the classified story. >> bill: it didn't make any sense to mccain and graham and to ayotte today. it doesn't. if you have classified infor
dome, and other u.s.-israeli missile defense programs. i'm sunling that that is something that the u.s. as well as the israelis certainly were talking about to actually bolster that defense system. >> it's worked rather well so far, that iron dome. it's israeli developed, but it's funded, in part, in large part, by the united states to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars so far. as part of this package deal, it looks like the u.s. is making a further commitment. the president of the united states to the prime minister of israel. that funding will continue, and the israelis have been pretty grateful about it. when i spoke to the israeli president shimon peres this morning, suzanne, he said that there would be a lot more israeli deaths, a lot more israeli injuries if it wasn't for this iron dome system that the u.s. has helped israel with in terms of funding and some technology development, and he was grateful to the united states. he was very profusive in his praise of president obama, and when i said to simon peres that it was only a few weeks ago that mitt romney, the republ
a third were intercepted by the iron dome defense system. this attack, a bomb, a public bus around lunch time, not far from israel's military headquarters. the blast wounded 24 people, added a new urgency to efforts to reach a cease-fire. the military wing of hamas tweeted to israelis, you opened the gates of hell on yourselves. 40 minutes after the bus bombing, our cameras captured this explosion in gaza city. all the while there was a flurry of diplomating activity. secretary clinton met with palestinian authority mahmoud abbas in the west bank and benjamin net ya knetanahu in ca. let's go straight to fred pleitgen where sirens have been going off earlier. and joining us is ben wedeman in the gaza strip, gaza city. fred, what are you seeing now in ashkelon? >> reporter: >> from ted pleitgen, have the rockets stopped in ashkelon? >> reporter: the rockets, yes, have stopped in ashkelon. it was interesting, because up until about a minute before our broadcast began, there were still booms that were heard in the sky. and about ten minutes ago we had to run for cover in ashkelon. now it app
harrigan live this tuesday morning in cairo. surprise move the israeli defense minister ehud barak announced is he quitting politics all together. this comes after he led that 8 day military offensive against hamas which ended last week in what is a fragile cease-fire. he is 70 years old now. and says he will stay on until a new government is sworn in after the elections. national elections in january. ehud barak is israel's most decorated soldier. he also served as prime minister. barak has been moderating influence with the united states and powers. his decision to quit politics comes at a time of uncertainty with israel. he has clashed publicly with the prime minister there benjamin netanyahu how to handle the threat from iran's nuclear program. folks at the macy's thanksgiving day parade spotted something strange. turns out some of the confetti was actually secret police files. coming up, how social security numbers and info on undercover cops and even governor mitt romney's motorcade ended unraining down ended up raining down on the crowds. second time in just days that a bird

lieberman didn't see eye to eye with the defense minister who was leaning towards accepting this draft proposal sent by hamas via the egyptian government. so once it was clear that those efforts had sort of run into a brick wall, we saw an intensification of israeli air strikes and of course rocket fire out of gaza as well. one of the rockets, rather, one of the air strikes hit very close to the hotel where many journalists are staying right on the coast right next to the gaza city beach. now most recently within the last hour the house of a senior adviser to hamas, prime minister ishmael hamiya was hit and killed. as you mentioned, the death toll has now reached 139 according to palestinian medical sources. at the moment, it's relatively quiet, but unless there's real progress broke towards a cease-fire, we may just slip back into this exchange of fire that we have been seeing now for eight days. >> at the moment it's quiet. let me ask you, though, about the leaflets that are dropped from the sky from israel to basically warn civilians in gaza as a heads-up. look, we are sending a mis
participated in the defense department. government doesn't build weaponry. private-sector does that. i presented the figures earlier today with the students and faculty members. in 1980, government contracting with the private sector represented about $47 billion. it was $513 billion in 2008. that is a bit of an increase. you are raising a good question. there are conflicts between government and business that are hard to work out, especially in areas of regulation. they do not like that. there are many ways that the government and the private sector have worked together to produce some of the great achievements in human history. >> please chummy in thanking professor rainey. >> thank you. >> to us for a program on retirement issues for the baby boomer generation. the event features author marc freedman. will open the lines and get your thoughts. organizations are more likely to cut matching contributions than retirement plans. more of that, not beginning at 2:00 p.m. eastern. the united nations security council is meeting to discuss the situation with israel and hamas and the gaza str
